Abstract

   This memo specifies an RTP payload format for encapsulating
   uncompressed High Definition Television (HDTV) as defined by the
   Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) standard,
   SMPTE 292M.  SMPTE is the main standardizing body in the motion
   imaging industry and the SMPTE 292M standard defines a bit-serial
   digital interface for local area HDTV transport.

1.  Introduction

   The serial digital interface, SMPTE 292M [1], defines a universal
   medium of interchange for uncompressed High Definition Television
   (HDTV) between various types of video equipment (cameras, encoders,
   VTRs, etc.).  SMPTE 292M stipulates that the source data be in 10 bit
   words and the total data rate be either 1.485 Gbps or 1.485/1.001
   Gbps.

   The use of a dedicated serial interconnect is appropriate in a studio
   environment, but it is desirable to leverage the widespread
   availability of high bandwidth IP connectivity to allow efficient
   wide area delivery of SMPTE 292M content.  Accordingly, this memo
   defines an RTP payload format for SMPTE 292M format video.
